OFFSHORE: The weather forecasting was a bit hit and miss this week. Wind direction was correctly tabbed as variable northerlies but some days, when the forecast was for moderate to strong 20 knot+ winds, they were at worst, only moderate. With the swell hovering in the 0.5m to 1m range the outer reefs were certainly worth a look. Glenn Allen and a couple of the lads from the Noosa Boat Fishing Club tackled The Hards yesterday morning and came back with snapper, venus tusk fish and moses perch. Small soft plastics got best results. The only negative; the lumpy ride home ahead of the freshening nor' easter.
Snapperand Pearl Perch
Noosa Blue Water Charters scheduled a run to the Barwon Banks on Saturday. During the full day charter they got onto snapper, pearl perch, venus tusk fish, moses perch, mowong, rosy jobfish and bonito. Stuart, Kirsty-Jean, Jason, Wade, Mark and Jack (above) are pictured with some of the standout fish.
Pearl Perch
Jack Harris from Redcliffe (above) couldn't keep the grin off his face after he got back, so I thought that merited a close up of his pearlies... fish and teeth.
Snapper Maori Cod
On the other hand, I couldn't get Mark McGrogan from Mango Hill (above left) to smile in the group shot but once I cut him from the herd he finally cracked.
Closer in, North Reef produced black tip shark, pearl perch, tailor, bonito, snapper, Maori cod, cobia and a few mulloway. Birthday boy Shane Little (above) is pictured with a quality 4kg Maori cod from Saturday morning's Trekka 2 charter to North Reef. Shane is also a poster boy for the 'Slip, Slop, Slap' campaign.
Mulloway orJewfish
The Little tribe booked most of the spots on Saturday's Trekka 2 charter. They were celebrating Shane's 40th birthday but also hoping for a few fish. Adrian Little (above) was delighted with the 6kg+ mulloway or jewfish he boated, particularly so when it was the last drop of the morning before they pulled the pick.
Cobia or Black Kingfish
And Dave Little (above) was more than happy to pose with a 6kg cobia from the same charter. The only other reports were of venus tusk fish and the odd moses perch on the bite on Sunshine Reef while Australian bonito were responding well to trolled hard body lures and cast metal slugs in Laguna Bay.
